Product Description

The Line 6 Pod HD Pro Rackmount is here to make your quest for those perfect guitar tones a whole lot simpler. Sure, a pedalboard loaded with shiny boxes and endless cables looks cool on stage. But it's a lot to haul around, right? The fact is, there's no real reason to carry around a bunch of pedals and power supplies anymore. The Line 6 Pod HD compresses all the power you can possibly imagine getting out of a stompbox collection into a single extraordinarily powerful rackmount unit. It combines Line 6's legendary digital amp modeling technology with a vast array of FX and processors, in an interface allowing you to create literally millions of custom combinations. Are you ready to sell that pedalboard yet? Auction off those old stompboxes and get yourself the Pod HD Pro for a song!

Line 6: Decades of Amp-Modeling Experience

Line 6 has long since proven itself as a leader of the digital tone modeling revolution, and the Pod HD Pro reflects nearly 20 years of sustained innovation. You'll now have the pleasure of perusing 22 freshly updated amp simulations, derived from painstaking studies of classic warhorse amps like the Fender Twin Reverb, the Hiwatt Custom 100, the Vox AC-30, the Marshall JCM 800, and many more.

Build Your Own Virtual Signal Chains

Creating your own virtual signal chains means that you'll be able to create sounds that would cost unfathomable amounts of money if you were playing with their fussy real-world counterparts. Here, you can combine the amp models mentioned above with any desired combination of 100+ FX units, in any order you want to put them together. Are 19 different delay units enough? 12 different reverbs? How about 26 different filter patches, each fully tweakable across hundreds of parameters? Also, if you've got a mid-song transition that requires you to switch to a different instrument entirely, you can leave the first signal chain running while you play through a parallel path running its own distinct preset.

Truly Authentic Tube Modeling

The reason musicians have long loved real tube amps is for their variability of tone. The Pod HD Pro doesn't sell you short on that. It allows you to simulate crucial factors like singled-ended and push/pull outputs, both Class A and Class AB interactions, a number of phase inversion topologies, and a whole lot more.

Your Feet Will Not Miss the Pedalboard

The Pod HD Pro hooks up effortlessly with the Line 6 FBV MkII foot controller, to keep your feet in the game. You can use it to add dynamic expression to your playing, to control parameters on your FX presets, or to control the built-in looper. That's right -- the Line 6 Pod HD Pro has a world-class 48-second looper on board, just in case you needed one.

Goes Anywhere and Everywhere

In the studio, or on the stage, the Pod HD Pro is ready to get your tone where it needs to be, right away. As you come to depend on this unit for most or all of your processing needs, you'll save huge amounts of space and setup time. And if you're eco-sensitive, you can also take some pride in saving all the power those stomboxes were eating up. Cool, right?

The extensive digital and analog I/O is perfectly suited for any professional environment - stage or studio. POD HD Pro is the flagship POD(r) and it represents tone and power unlike anything else available.

Sound and Feel Like Never Before

HD amp models defy the accepted standard. They feel, behave and interact with previously unachievable realism.

Creating these HD amp models was no small feat. 15 years of amp modeling experience coupled with 3 years of research and development delivered an amp modeling technology from that was built from the ground up. During that time, a collection of incredible amplifiers were selected and - with the help of some of the country's top tube amp experts - restored back to peak condition and performance. Each amplifier was modeled using this technology and the results surpassed every expectation.

HD amp modeling technology delivers the nuances of analog tube amp design like never before. It includes singled-ended and push/pull outputs, Class A and Class AB interactions, a variety of phase inverter topologies, parallel preamp paths, and much more. The result is unprecedented, warmth, feel, sustain and articulation for you to fall in love with.

Tube amp fanatics have long enthused that their favorite stacks and combos aren't merely "amps" but instruments themselves, with playability equal to that of the guitar plugged into them. HD modeling lifts the POD HD Pro experience to that same exalted level, capturing the genuine playability that great guitarists demand.

100+ M-class FX

POD HD Pro features a whopping 100+ M-class effects for you to craft your sound. With this wide tonal palette to play with, you can sound like anyone under the sun... or no one but you. Use up to 8 effects at once in any order.

Unprecedented flexibility with speed and ease

Beyond the depth of the amp and effect models, POD HD Pro offers supreme flexibility to mix and match amps and pedals in multiple rigs can be saved as presets for instant recall.

Connect a Line 6 FBV(tm)) MkII foot controller for instant access to your preset rigs of HD amp models, effects, cabs, mics and more. Use it as an expression pedal, turn effects on and off and even control the built-in looper.

Create parallel paths for parallel processing or creating two unique signal paths (each complete with its own amp and effect models) that can deliver the richest, sonically complex tones.

Where other multi-effects seem to require a degree in nuclear physics to access this kind of deep programmability, POD HD Pro makes it easy. Your entire signal chain is displayed in the LCD screen for easy access to every parameter - no deep-diving necessary. Simply select a model and drop it into the signal chain anywhere you choose.

Comprehensive Connectivity

Put simply, POD HD Pro connects to just about anything and everything - analog or digital, balanced or unbalanced, direct to your computer or amplifier.

A snapshot of the back panel shows 1/4" unbalanced (mono/stereo) and XLR balanced outputs (both with switchable output level), 1/4" line-level inputs (mono/stereo with switchable level), USB, MIDI in and out/thru, S/PDIF digital in and out, 1/4" stereo FX loop (mono/stereo), 1/4" Dry Out jack, Variax(r) Digital Input connection, FBV foot controller jack and combination AES/EBU and L6 LINK(tm)) jacks for seamless integration with Line 6 DT-series tube amplifiers.

Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (14 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. "Best Decision I've Ever Made"
Sound: The sound quality is simply unmatched. I have an arsenal of tones I would have never been able to have before. I play in three bands. All of which are different genres ranging from country to metal and this thing delivers. The amp tones are clear and the effects are simple to use. Feature: With over 30 different amps and over 100 different effects, what else could you ask for? Plus, it plugs right into the house sound so stage noise is no longer a factor in mixing. With the XLR, 1/4" and L6 Link outputs, you can hook it up to anything. I currently have mine running into a Crown 1000 watt amp which powers a Yamaha SM15V floor monitor for jamming at my house. Ease of Use: The software and the rack unit are both very intuitive. Setting up presets requires no effort and are easily tweaked at any time. Plus, it weighs a lot less than the Fender Hot Rod Deluxe and SKB pedalboard I used to take to every gig. I would recommend getting the Line 6 FBV Shortboard for live performances. Quality: The product seems to be very durable. I keep mine in a Gator powered rack case so I should never have to worry about any mishaps. Value: I would spend over a $1000 on this thing. It offers an abundance of tones and effects that would cost you thousands of dollars if bought individually. Manufacturer Support: I have yet to deal with the Tech Support. To be honest, every question I needed to be answered was either found in the booklet or on the Line 6 forum. The Wow Factor: Having a rack unit was something I had always dreamed of since I was a kid. This thing fully delivers. I can't tell you how many people have asked me about it. Overall: This is the best piece of equipment I have ever owned! It offers an endless variety of tones and effects that would cost you thousands of dollars if you bought them individually. It has really made me enjoy playing guitar again. The benefit of having quiet sessions with great amp tones makes the Line 6 Pod HD Pro worth every penny. Not to mention, my live gigs are way more fun. Not to mention, live gigs are unbelievable with this thing. I've had numerous sound guys tell me they could not believe the sound quality and the quiet preset switching this thing contains. I would recommend it to everyone.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Pod HD Pro is tops!"
Sound: Sounds awesome! I get EXACTLY the tone I want out of it. Feature: The modular signal path design is the best! The downloadable Pod HD Edit software makes designing patches a breeze. It has all the outputs you could possibly need! The only thing I wish for is a trim knob for the guitar input. Ease of Use: If you use the Pod HD Edit, the ease of use is great. If you decide to edit on the unit, there are a lot of menus to flip through, making it a bother to edit from a black patch to a complete one. I recommend that you build your patches on the computer and just use the unit for small tweaks. Quality: The product is well made, it has been reliable so far (I did have an issue with the first one but I'll get to that in a second). It seems like it could last a good 10+ years. Value: Compared to the Axe FX, the Pod is a great value. I gave it 4.5 stars because it is almost $800 after tax, and that is a pretty high price tag for the average musician. However, the amount of power in this unit is well worth the price. Manufacturer Support: I had to call Line 6 after the first unit showed up because I think that moisture collected on the inside. After using the unit a few times it started to smell like burnt circuit board. I contacted Line 6 and they replaced it right away! They were amazing. The Wow Factor: It gives me exactly the sounds I'm looking for. It keeps my stage/practice area clean because I no longer have to have individual effects scattered everywhere with 1000 patch cables and wall warts. When I set up for live shows, I literally have 4 cables; a guitar cable, a cable for the pedal, a power cord, and an XLR that goes to my powered wedge. It's awesome! Overall: This piece of gear is amazing! It's modular signal layout allows you to place any effect anywhere in the chain! You can stack effects too, so if one noise gate doesn't quite clamp your signal down, you can add another. It's a great looking piece of gear also. It is well made.
